Blues for Kids Invites Patient Artists to Morning Skate & Game

In addition to awarding Friends of Kids with Cancer the Captain's Grant in 2024 for $50,000 to support art therapy programs, Blues for Kids, the charitable trust of the St. Louis Blues, invited patient artists and their families, along with Friends art therapists to enjoy the St. Louis Blues morning skate at Enterprise Center this month. A collaborative mosaic art piece created by patients and siblings was unveiled to be hung in the Blues for Kids section of Enterprise Center.

Families got to meet St. Louis Blues Captain, Brayden Schenn, ask questions, take photos, and take home a signed puck.

That evening, patients and their families were invited to the Brayden Schenn suite to watch the Blues vs. the Colorado Avalanche game. Friends treated each family member to an item of their choice in the merch store and cheered on the Blues while eating great food in the private suite.

A big thank you to Blues for Kids and Brayden Schenn for an incredible day and for making a difference in the lives of St. Louis families facing cancer through their generous funding of art therapy.
